Election night has arrived, which means you’re likely feeling anxious as hell as we wait for results to roll in.

Hopefully you’ve been making a conscious effort to distract yourself from crushing Election Day stress, but since it’s going to be a while before all the ballots are counted we’re here to give you another pick-me-up.

Take a break from refreshing FiveThirtyEight statistics, watching the New York Times needles, and doomscrolling through social media to enjoy these wholesome moments from polling places around the country on Tuesday.

Yes, the election process is absolutely agonizing, but hopefully you can find some temporary comfort in pets, music, dancing, and snacks at the polls.
